Stories From the Niagara Frontier

Stories From the Niagara Frontier

During the month of February, anyone who is interested may attend Stories From the Niagara Frontier, a series of films that highlights important and often underreported issues with a significant impact on the Buffalo and Western New York areas. Squeaky Wheel, in collaboration with the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, is presenting this series of screenings and discussions every Thursday from noon until 1pm.  Each screening is free and open to the public.  Attendees will have a chance to view the short video and then participate in a Q&A with the filmmaker or someone who was closely involved with the project. The films will include Everybody Lives Downstream (a history of Buffalo’s relationship with the Buffalo River both industrially and restoratively), Reclamation (following the 100 year old congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Resurrection), Living in the Shadow of the Bridge (depicting the negative impact of the constant expansion of bridges by the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority), and You Are Where You Live (sharing personal stories of the Clean Air Coalition’s for the right to have a healthy environment).  The screenings will take place at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library   Please contact Goda Trakumaite of Squeaky Wheel/Buffalo Media Resources at goda@squeaky.org or (716) 884-7172 for more information. —dan whitney
